Continuing Education for Orthopedic Physical Therapy Providers
The Foundation for Orthopaedic Research and Education (FORE) provides continuing education courses for physical therapy providers who work partially or primarily with orthopedic patients. Highlighting the latest techniques in rehabilitation, pain management and patient education, FORE’s physical therapy courses are specifically designed to provide an increased range of strategies for treating patients with sprains, strains, tendonitis, ligament or muscle tears, inflammation, post-fracture injury, joint pain and special post-operative needs.
At FORE’s orthopedic conferences, physical therapists will learn how to assess and implement today’s latest injury management techniques into their day-to-day patient care endeavors. Topics may include pediatric rehabilitation, biological treatments, arthritis care and sports injury rehab. At select conferences, physical therapists can also participate in hands-on workshops designed to introduce and familiarize participants with new techniques and technologies. Because physical therapy is a field that is so largely driven by feel and real-life experience, these opportunities make FORE’s conferences particularly valuable in the long term.
While each conference has a unique area of focus and physical therapists are welcome at all of FORE’s events, the continuing education conferences that most prominently feature physical therapy-related topics include:
- The Southeast Fracture Symposium, held in Durham, North Carolina, from January 26 – 28, 2017
- The Detroit Sports Medicine Symposium, held in Detroit, Michigan, from July 13 – 14, 2017
- Chicago Spots, held in Chicago, Illinois, from August 3 – 6, 2017
- The Atlanta Trauma Symposium, held in Atlanta, Georgia, from April 20 – 22, 2017
